European Auto Repair Shop Business Consulting
“Repair shops that focus on European cars, face unique business challenges”
Auto Repair Shop Consulting
If you own an automotive repair shop business focused on European cars, much of the consulting and business advice options available to you absolutely do not work. Your business, your customers and your issues, are radically different from a domestic shop – we know and we get it. We can help you.
You need our help if you find yourself increasingly:
- Putting in more hours for less income
- Struggling with getting the best work from employees
- Have difficulty in navigating the minefield of advertising
- Can’t seem to generate new customers that want to spend money
Over the past 35 years, we’ve successfully started, grown, managed and exited multiple independent shops on different continents. We have significant global business experience and a depth of knowledge in European auto repair shops, that far exceeds the standard repair shop consultant.
We don’t bang on about KPI’s, car counts, weekly mailers or shop supply fees – the truth is every business confronts a diverse set of challenges and there are no magic measures, numbers or formulas that work for everyone. You are unique and that is your strength.
We provide auto repair shop consulting exclusively to a select number of clients. We work one on one with you, because that’s the only true way to offer value in your business. So, if you believe your business is like everyone else and fits into a standard PowerPoint presentation, this isn’t for you. If you think your business will benefit from a standard 4-day class with a collection of other shop owners, this isn’t for you. And if you see yourself at an event orchestrated by the one-size fits all consultants, then this is not for you either.
If you want to gain a competitive edge for your unique business through one on one coaching, reach out to us today.
Auto Repair Shop Coaching
You can’t fail to notice that behind every super successful sports professional is a coach, a mentor or go to person. Someone who provides knowledge, experience, reason, motivation and often direction. Facing today’s business challenges on your own is tough and a recipe for failure.
Business and technology are evolving at a rapid pace. Many of the vehicles you work on and the diagnostic problems you face are significantly advanced. Vehicle technology has advanced rapidly over the last 10 years. European vehicles in particular are on the bleeding edge for technology and include operating systems and devices that domestic vehicles fall way behind on.
Your customer has a completely different set of expectations than the customers of a quick lube oil change. Owners of European cars are a different demographic from domestic vehicle owners and as such, must be approached in a way that is radically different from the KPI’s, car counts, weekly mailers or shop supply fees approach of other consultants.
Our auto repair shop coaching method addresses the need for a personal business coach that can provide knowledge, reason, expertise and direction in all aspects of your business – specifically, our help is focused on the business of serving customers who drive European cars.
We Start By Listening
As business owners, sometimes we are so caught up in the day to day rush, that we can’t hear or see the things that are some of the most obvious barriers to success. Rarely do we step outside of our role as leader and view our business from the outside. So, we start by listening to you and looking honestly from the outside, to tell you what we see and hear. We specifically address issues you raise, listen to your concerns and provide you with honest feedback before we begin to make plans together.
We’ll help you to:
- Identify and clarify your goals
- Inject unique ideas
- Build a business strategy
- Define actions to achieve success
- Build on your strengths, mitigate any weakness
- Plan for the unknown
- Reach your goals
What you can expect from us:
- Knowledge of the challenges you face
- Guidance for a successful path
- Motivation to get through the tough times
- Tips, tricks, twists and turns that work
- Honest feedback – we’ll tell you straight
- The devils advocate – we’ll ask why it’s a good idea.
- Encouragement – You got this
